Yeah man, the f/4L IS version one of the SHARPEST Canon zoom lenses. I was on a tight budget back when I bought the 70-200 f/4L and I never really got around to using it much since it was too slow for low-light. Even with my 70-200 f/2.8 IS now, I still find myself using primes 90% of the time.
Speaking of gear, I'm still contemplating about trading my 50L for a 35L. However, I've found a new favorite combo...1D3 + 24L. It's close to a 35 equivalent on a full-frame so I'm still debating. I might instead choose to flip the 24L for the mark II version or save up a lil more for that new 1D4, depending on how reviews turn out on its low-light capabilities. One thing is for sure, the 1D body is so much better on the hands the 5D2 with grip...and don't get me start with AF comparisons

Sounds like the Canon S90 is what you're looking for. Think G11 in a more compact body. I'm selling my 24-70L, 70-200 f/4L and Sigma 10-20 to buy the G11 + gifts for friends and family.

Thanks. Got it off Amazon for $439. I might end up spending more since I'm thinking about getting a bag for it now.

sounds like a Canon 50 f/1.8 II or 50 f/1.4 if you're willing to drop a lil more. The 50mm range makes a good portrait lens for cropped bodies. A longer prime you could look at is the 85 f/1.4. In terms of quality of image produced for the price you pay, the 50 f/1.8 is a no-brainer.
